e-Bike Rentals at Holiday Valley

July 20, 2019

 

Holiday Valley Resort purchased 8 Rossignol electric assist, or e-bikes, and has begun renting them at Sky High Adventure Park.  An e-bike allows the rider to shift into 3 different power modes to assist with uphill climbing.  Prices are $40 for a 2 hour rental or $55 for a 3 hour rental, and $15 for each additional hour with helmets included in the rental price.

 

Holiday Valley’s e-bike trail begins at the Sky High Adventure Park Harness Shop, and uses service roads and trails to go up through the resort, across the top and back down a ski slope.  Riders are given a map and an introduction to the operation of the bike.  They can practice shifting and can get familiar with riding on a gentle grass covered slope near the Harness Shop.

 

 

E-bike riders still have to pedal and the bikes allow them to choose the amount of power they need to zip up the hills and cruise over tough terrain in eco, trail or boost mode settings.  Speed is controlled by pedaling, like a regular bike, but it feels really powerful and the bike accelerates easily.  That’s the reason everyone from newbie to hard core riders end up with a big smile on their face when they try an e-bike.  Bikes are available for rent from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, with the last 2 hour rental going out at 3 p.m.

 

Other attractions at Sky High include the Aerial Adventure Park where climbers navigate bridges, obstacles and zip lines as they travel through the treetops on 13 courses of varying difficulty, the Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster – a roller coaster that zigs, zags and spirals down the mountain where the rider controls the speed, the Climbing Forest – a 3-D climbing wall where handholds are attached to tree trunks, and Mr. Happy Gem Mining which mimics old fashioned panning for gold where miners are guaranteed treasures.
